Villa Sumaya – Lake Atitlan, Guatemala (

I’m smitten with restorative adventures to exotic destinations, surrounded by nature where we can align with our highest selves. This eco-chic gem, located on a gorgeous lake with a view of two beautiful (inactive) volcanos was the perfect setting for an amazing retreat with Dr. Deb Kern. I cannot say enough about Deb’s retreats – they are truly life-changing.

Along with Deb’s mind-blowing/heart-opening retreat program that including daily dancing, yoga, and so much more, we also partook in Mayan rituals, like a beautiful Mayan cacao ceremony led by the Villa Sumaya staff.

We enjoyed incredible vegetarian cuisine for “eco-epicureans”, served at the sound of a happy bell, three times daily. Expectations were highly exceeded with the astonishing array of fresh/flavorful Mayan-inspired cuisine – truly delicious and so lovingly prepared. And, we savored sublime spa treatments with some of the most gifted, healing practitioners anywhere in the world.
